Most likely i'd think, Envy has always been a breeze to trim her nails and brush (her ears are always spotlessly clean so I don't bother with that) But Chaos...I STILL haven't managed to get his nails trimmed, I may end up going the soft paws route on him, those things HURT!
I think if you atart out grooming them as kittens they will adapt to it. I have one cat that was an adult when I took him in. He absolutely refuses to let me clip his nails. He never would let me brush him either. I finally have got him to let me brush him and I can touch his paws, but he still won't let me clip his nails. My other 2 cats I adopted as kittens and started grooming when they were young. They are very easy to grrom.
